What to do in Christchurch
Christchurch is a vibrant city fondly called New Zealand’s “Garden City” for having lots of full-grown trees spread out across its suburbs. It’s also South Island’s biggest city and is one of the hippest places to go in the country.
There are many great public spaces for you to visit like the beautiful Christchurch Botanic Gardens which has a huge collection of exotic and local plants. Don’t miss the Avon River nearby that flows through the city. Try punting and cruise the river from the city centre, Hagley Park, or Mona Vale.
Riccarton House and Bush is also a top heritage attraction in Christchurch, and it’s made up of two historic buildings lined by beautiful open parkland and rich gardens, and is surrounded by the Avon River.
Surfies can enjoy the city’s waters by heading to the beach. Popular Taylor’s Mistake Beach will give you the strongest waves, or you can check out Sumner and Waikuku beaches.
Are you a culture vulture? Stop by Christchurch Art Gallery, Canterbury Museum, Christchurch Cathedral, and Ferrymead Heritage Park. Other interesting places in the city include Orana Park, the International Antarctic Centre, and Willowbank Wildlife Park.
Christchurch also has different shopping districts for all types of shoppers. Find specialty boutiques in the New Regent Street. For bargains, browse more than 60 shops in Dress Smart.
